Accurately identify these three stones before anyone else (* see rules at bottom) and you will win a free download of Gemology Tools Professional 8.4 (software for the professional gemologist, the gemology student or the gemstone enthusiast). Two of the three stones are rare. One is pretty common and it can be important that you can identify it. It is also very easy to ID.

Stone #1

1) Color: Purple
2) Optic Character: DR B+
3) Transparency: Semitranslucent at best
4) Specific Gravity: 3.65


Stone #2

1) Color: Colorless
2) Optic Character: DR U+
3) Polish Luster: Metallic
4) UV Short Wave reaction: Inert
5) Specific Gravity: about 3.2

Stone #3

1) Color: Green
2) Optic Character: DR U+
3) Transparency: Translucent
4) Refractive Index: 1.60
5) Hardness: <4

Rules: Owners of GT Pro cannot win (so please don't enter). You must have all 3 stones listed in your guess in the proper order (and only those 3 stones). Don't list more than 3 stones or your entry is invalid. You may make multiple entries.

Still have 2 right, so now you know for sure which one is wrong (even though I'm sure you already knew that).
